“Forget all the reasons why it won’t work and believe the one reason why it will.”


Though Nepal is certainly not a meat eating culture (the cow is sacred and other meats are expensive) when there is meat for sale it is always interesting to see. Fish in huge piles on the side of the road, chickens, sometimes still alive, waiting to be killed, and heads of animals who have already been slaughtered on display. There is no hiding the meat in dainty packages nicely cut for consumption in this part of the world.

Here is an example of a meat shop that sells buffalo. They blacken the limbs with some kind of torch. I have on occasion encountered a jaw with its teeth still in place from one of these shops just lying on the road.


And when you see what the chickens eat, you start to think twice about buying meat in the city!


Sadly the monkeys and dogs are also found in the large trash piles scattered around the streets.
